Counterpunch on nuclear power,

    The following is from counterpunch, and is copyrighted, but here is the link:

    [crackpot link deleted]

    conclusion "Nuclear power here earth, however, not only CAN be eliminated, it MUST be. No community with a nuke should settle for less than total abolition of this dire and eminent threat to their health and well-being.

    Most possible "improvements" people talk about will have only a relatively minor effect, if any, on the likelihood that the next nuke to melt down might do so explosively -- blowing the top of the reactor pressure vessel more than a mile into the air, spreading 60 to 100 tons of radioactive poison into the atmosphere, poisoning the landscape for hundreds of miles downwind."

    Hopefully there will SOON be similar follow up pieces from 'http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Mickey_Mouse.svg" [Broken]', or other similarly respectable and carefully referenced sources. Their voices are numerous, but working TOGETHER we can be sure they are heard here in this engineering forum without delay. Edit: corrected format to all caps where appropriate.

    As mheslep implied, this is pure, unadulterated crap. Most of it is straightforward lies, the rest just intentionally misleading fearmongering/propaganda.
